KAHAKARI combines: (1) Retail of co-operatively produced bags with (2) University research.

(1) The bags are designed to the highest standards of design and quality; and made primarily under the preservation of traditional craft techniques. 

(2) A cooperation with the Department of Co-operative Studies at the University of Vienna, ensures access to the latest published scientific knowledge of economy. These publications promote an understanding of co-operatives and allow for critical examination of this undervalued corporate form. Furthermore, the academic research provides our co-operative partners, and our business model, an ongoing base for improvement.

KAHAKARI offers an opportunity for conscientious and responsible shopping of artisan bags.
